Stroupe Federal Style Mirror

"Mirrors make a room a reflection of your personality."  We always like to find original ads and documentation, especially when we're not familiar with a designer or maker.  This Federal style mirror was made by Stroupe of North Carolina.  The frame is gilt wood with fluted columns and acanthus leaf decoration.  The ebonized panel features a carved and gilded eagle and 13 stars.  It has its' original label and price.  In 1974 the mirror cost $88.00 U.S.  That would equate to about $450.00 U.S. today.  36.5" h., 24.5" w.  American, c. 1974  SOLD
